It was Mini Lobster season.
|Usually they aren't this big!|
That has nothing to do with the size of the lobsters ...
But rather the shortness of that particular season.
Regular spiny lobster season runs from August 6 through March 31. Lobster Mini Season (not to be confused with Mini Lobster season) runs for two days in the last consecutive Wednesday and Thursday in July. There must be a good reason for that.
I was glad to have finally escaped the traffic (and that giant lobster!)
